Staph infection
Posted by: Sandra

I have a hospital acquired Staph infection which I got during the birth of my baby 18 months ago. The only place that it presents itself is in my nose, inside my nostrils and sometimes on the outside. The skin just inside the tip of the nose has red, infected hair follicles/mucus membranes and pustules come and go, like herpes. An infectious disease specialist/lab tests confirmed that it is the non-resistant form of staph and prescribed Mupirocin topical ointment and Augmentin (generic AMOX TR-K CL 875mg). I am using the topical, but not internal antibiotic because the pharmacist said AMOXTR-KCL is very hard on the digestive system and Iíve had digestive problems in the past. Iíve tried saline nasal wash, drawing salve, homeopathy, fasting, grapefruit seed extract, H2O2. I am a relatively healthy 39-yr old with moderate adrenal/thyroid exhaustion which is being treated by Cortef/Synthyroid/Cytomel. Are there San Pharma or Pekana or any other treatment/remedies that would help rid this? Or do you recommend I take the antibiotic and could you suggest a protocol that I do to prevent serious damage to my digestive system? Very concerned about infection spreading.

Notatum would be the SanPharma of choice and Apo-Infect is the Pekana remedy. It is always good to treat exposed bacteria topically and I guess you are doing that. I can't recommend anything as I am not your treating physician. Perm A Vit is an excellent product for helping prevent GI damage.
